Sunday Dinner: Choosing Happiness

“The most courageous act
is still to think for yourself.
Coco Chanel
“Freedom is not worth having
if it does not include the freedom
to make mistakes.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Rudbeckia laciniata, a beautiful native plant, grows to 10′ tall and spreads each year. Here, cozy with pineapple mint.

“Those who deny freedom to others,
deserve it not for themselves”
Abraham Lincoln
“Letting go gives us freedom,
and freedom is the only condition for happiness.
If, in our heart, we still cling to anything –
anger, anxiety, or possessions –
we cannot be free.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty.
The obedient must be slaves.”
Henry David Thoreau
